posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Capcom began streaming an introduction video on Friday for its Monster Hunter: World game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The video previews the game's story, setting, field gameplay, world map, weapons, and more.
Capcom also provided more details on Friday for the game's upcoming beta for PlayStation 4. The beta is limited to PlayStation Plus members, and will run from December 9 at 12:00 p.m. EST to December 12 at 11:59 a.m. EST. Players will get bonuses to use in the full game.
The game is slated for a worldwide release on PS4 and Xbox One on January 26. The game will be available in Digital Deluxe Edition and Collector's Edition versions.
The Digital Deluxe Edition will come with the Samurai Set armor, three additional gestures, two additional sticker sets, an additional face paint, and additional hair style.
The Collector's Edition will contain everything from the Digital Deluxe Edition and also include a Nergigante figure, a download code for the game's soundtrack, and the "Monster Designs" art book.
People who pre-order any edition of the game will receive a download code for the Origin Armor set and Fair Wind charm. In addition, digital pre-orders will get an exclusive PS4 theme.
The PC release will follow after the game's console release.
The new game will be an open world game that will no longer have the previous games' loading screens in between areas, and will thus no longer allow players to use zone transitions as safe zones. The game will have a "living ecosystem" that will allow players to use and destroy elements of the environment, and use monster behaviors against other monsters.
Capcom's latest Monster Hunter game, Monster Hunter XX, shipped in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS on March 18, and shipped for the Nintendo Switch console on August 25. Capcom's Monster Hunter Stories role-playing game for the Nintendo 3DS shipped in Japan in October 2016, and it shipped in the West in September.
